WASHINGTON, D.C. — The Trumbull Neighborhood Partnership through the Community Food Projects Competitive Grant Program has been awarded a $48,918 federal grant.
U.S. Sen. Sherrod Brown, D-Ohio, today announced the grant from the United States Department of Agriculture’s National Institute of Food and Agriculture.
“This investment will help the Trumbull Neighborhood Partnership support local food producers and provide training and resources to local growers,” Brown said. “Investing in local food producers not only benefits Ohioans who can eat nutritious, fresh foods — it also boosts our agriculture sector and grows our economy.”
Through this award, the Trumbull Neighborhood Partnership plans to expand farm business knowledge, create a system where community members can share seeds and plant knowledge, increase access to local technical support resources, and connect more farmers to local processing resources for process planning and development.
